The Racing World is in Shock today as Tributes Pour in for Jack De Bromhead

Posted by

Awful news has come of the racing world with the passing of Jack De Bromhead son of Henry De Bromhead, only 13 years of age!

The teenager sustained fatal injuries in an incident that occurred while jockeying at the Glenbeigh Festival, which began on Saturday and had been due to take place as well on Sunday.

All further events at the Glenbeigh Racing Festival on Rossbeigh Beach this weekend have been cancelled following the tragic death of 13-year-old jockey Jack de Bromhead.

This is truly awful and we are thinking of his parents and close family and friends at this time, a young boy with his whole life in front of him and a tragic/freak accident. Life sometimes just isn’t fair.

The racing world is like the GAA in a lot of ways they way they pull together at times like this, this is truly unthinkable. We said our best to the family may Jack rest in peace.
